Ethics Minor

Navigating difficult topics and solving complex problems

Questions of moral responsibility, professional conduct, value formation, civil rights and protective legislation are raised repeatedly today in the fields of business, medicine, government, law, education, and within the family and our communities.

Navigating difficult topics with a listening ear and thoughtful approach can help the world solve complex problems. Studying ethics will give you the tools to do just that.

An ethics minor is an excellent complement to any major, particularly: philosophy; the study of religion; business; finance; teaching; communication; political theory; history; and more.
